Corn ’n Oil
1/2 oz falernum
2 oz blended aged rum from Barbados (Mount Gay Black Barrel)
2 dashes of Angostura bitters
Add everything to an old-fashioned glass and fill with crushed ice. Swizzle until the glass gets frosty. Sip.
1. Soak ~40 cloves in 6 ounces of J Wray & Nephew rum for 48 hours.
2. Add the zest of 9 limes, 2 tablespoons of toasted slivered almonds, and 1 1/2 oz of peeled fresh ginger to the rum and cloves. Soak that mixture for 24 hours.
3. After that last 24 hours, add in 14 ounces of 2:1 simple syrup (2 parts sugar to 1 part water) and 1/2 tsp. almond extract. That was stirred together and then shaken together.
